The Alaska State Museum is pleased to announce ๐˜—๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜บ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜”๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ด - ๐˜Œ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜จ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ญ ๐˜™๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ด, an exhibition of works by artist Jannah Sexton Atkins. Using found and recycled objects combined with hand-drawn and sculpted elements, Sexton Atkins assembles works that contemplate societyโ€™s connection to nature.
The Marker Series chronicles "humanityโ€™s impact on Earthโ€™s complex natural ecosystems by exponentially disrupting the elegant inter-relational web of organic life forms and their natural sustainable habitat critical for life itself.โ€
Each of the 20 Prayer Markers in the exhibition includes a portrait of an insect, bird, fish or plant. Sexton Atkins playfully combines these portraits with salvaged, societal waste. The resulting Markers encourage connection and responsibility to our planet.
The exhibit opens Friday, February 3, 4:30–7:00 pm. The artist will give a talk about her work at 6:30 pm in the APK lecture hall. The exhibit runs through April 8, 2023.
Jannah is one of six artists selected for the Alaska State Museum 2020-2023 Solo Artist Exhibition Series along with artists Alison Bremner Naxshageit, Ben Huff, Sonya Kelliher-Combs, Gail Priday, and Mitch Watley.
